Virtual Power Plant

The sonnenVPP is the key to our energy transition that provides clean, reliable, and affordable energy for everyone — a true win-win-win: for customers, communities, and our planet.

    The foundation for a clean energy future that benefits everyone.

    sonnen’s groundbreaking Virtual Power Plant (VPP) technology digitally links together local networks of sonnen residential and commercial batteries to form a single renewable power plant that is capable of deploying enough stored energy to reduce the use of traditional fossil fuels and lower CO2 emissions. 

    By using intelligent batteries and groundbreaking sonnenVPP software, we help support the local grid by providing valuable services when they are needed most, which generates financial rewards for our VPP members. By using sonnen batteries to help manage energy supply and demand, we are improving the flexibility and reliability of our existing energy infrastructure.
